Vic’s & The Vine, situated in the former Elliots bar and restaurant, is currently undergoing a seven figure refurbishment, which will see the popular all day and night establishment completely transformed.

With international designer Jim Hamilton leading on the project, the venue will boast a stylish new look, including a hand painted feature ceiling, authentic fireplace and a new glass roof in part of the bar – set to wow both regulars and new customers alike.

Kenny Blair, Buzzworks Managing Director, said: “The countdown to opening is well and truly on and we are excited to share these images to give our loyal customers a flavour of what to expect when Vic’s & The Vine opens its doors next month.

“Refurbishments are taking shape and the transformation has already been incredible. We’re certain that Vic’s & The Vine will appeal to all - whether its families, couples or groups of friends - providing one of the best day to night venues, not only in Ayrshire, but throughout Scotland.”

Marking a new chapter for the iconic Ayrshire venue, Vic’s & The Vine will be a venue of two halves.

The stylish Vine restaurant will have a relaxed family friendly atmosphere with 150 covers and private dining area, serving fantastic food from breakfast to late, seven days a week – ideal for celebrations, romantic meals and everything in between.

Visitors can also enjoy a leisurely coffee and freshly baked cake from the neighbouring Bakehouse throughout the day.

The Vic’s bar, with its stunning interior, will be a modern take on the traditional bar, featuring live sport and entertainment seven days a week, with screenings in 4K.

In an Ayrshire first, Vic’s will also be the first venue to serve fresh tank beer straight from the brewery.

With three 500 litre chilled copper beer tanks situated above the bar ensuring that every pint not only tastes great, but proves a real talking point too.

Live music will also be on order throughout the week, with Vic’s set to support both local acts and big name performers on their custom built stage area, utilising the state-of-the-art sound system which is being installed within the premises.
